Once again i find myself staying over at Walworth Castle, and once again i was impressed by the experiance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My room was in the Castle part, and although there were plenty of stairs to climb, the room itself was very comfortable. Dinner was excellent, the duty chef knows how to cook and present... More

Stayed for 2 nights on arrival the appearance is impressive. Room was a bit small but suitable and clean. The breakfast choice is very good and also rather tasty. Didn't have evening meal as didn't appear to be a great choice. Staff was pleasant and helpful

Overnight stay with husband in room 5. We paid £62 including breakfast which was a good deal. Breakfast was beautiful with best black pudding ever however was a bit of a strange set up with cereals and juices in another room which was slightly awkward. Also could do with rubber feet on chairs on wooden floor as people just scrape... More

Beautiful, setting, helpful and friendly staff. Bedroom (4 poster suite) was amazing and very reasonable for the size as it was very large. Very happy, thank you. I would definitely recommend the Sunday carvery and afternoon tea. They also have a lovely outside area with swings etc for the kids to play on.

Sunday lunch was excellent. Tasty, plenty. We were a family group ranging from Great Grandson, grandson, daughter in law, daughter and myself. Every one of us enjoyed the carvery. Everything was cooked to perfection and plenty of choices. A glimpse around the venue looks perfect for weddings. In the grounds is a wild life falconry show. This you have to... More

We had a dissapointing stay at Walworth Castle. The room was very small and in need some TLC and updating. The sink didn't take the waste water away and the bathroom was a bit dusty and grubby. The food was good on the whole but there was inconsistency with the meals depending on which chef was on duty.

Stayed here the night of a wedding, in a suite (room 19) in the castle. Some of the rooms are in a more modern annexe and looked to be much smaller. Very large, comfortable room with seating area. Comfortable bed, large bathroom, quiet room (despite wedding downstairs), good breakfast. Very pleasant staff. All just a little bit tired. Décor can... More

Lovely setting. Grounds well maintained. Great staff. West wing room had a smelly bathroom. Lampshade squashed. Solid mattress. Really a 3 star room but for 59 was expected. Lots of parking. Good wifi and free. Bakewell tart pudding had no jam and was hard just no flavour. High prices with fine dining portions. Quiet stay.
